Hola a todos!
Well wasn't this week just a blast, with a great finisher like conference, why wouldn't it be. So this week was just another week down here in San Pedro. Elder Hardman and I are still in the finding game but had a couple of kewl experiences this week. It was Wednesday night, Elder Hardman and I had gone to visit everyone that we had planned for that day, it was 8 30 and we had half an hour left before returning home. We were trying to figure out what to do and then we just felt like we should go to Office Depot to finish some of the zone goal stuff that we were planning. So we went up there and when we got there we went to the copy center to get some stuff done. As they were doing our order we decided to just walk around the store. As we walked we came across a lady that had a huge dog. She told us that she needed to talk to us, we proceeded to talk with her, she told us that here favorite quote is, "Adam fell that men might be, and men are that they might have joy", we were both amazed that this lady wasn't a member of the church. We told her that we had General Conference this weekend and then explained how she could watch it. She was pretty excited and then we set up an appointment to go back and she her this week. Interesting how all of this came from an unusual impression to go to Office Depot. I will keep you posted on what happens with her.
So conference was amazing. I was pumped when President Monson annouced that Elders could leave at 18, and Sisters at 19. I can't wait see what is going to happen with all the young people that will be coming out into the field. I imagine there are going to be a lot of sisters coming out. I'm excited to see the effects of this annoucement. So Keyton what were your thought? You could be leaving on a mission in 1 year and a half. Wow it is the most amazing thing you will ever do. There is nothing that will bring you more satisfaction then helping others recieve the blessings of the gospel. I love my mission, it has changed me in so many ways, and I can only imagine the role that it will play in your life. With that said, Bryson you are following right behind. Even though it may seem far away, now is the time to prepare. If there is one thing that you can do, it would be to strengthen your testimony, through reading the Book of Mormon. I can't begin to express the countless times pepole have tried to tell me that I was lost, and wrong. You have to be prepared to stand your ground and defend those things that you know to be true. If you are struggling to know if this is true, take Moroni's challenge, figure it out. The only thing that will bring you through all the struggles you WILL have is your testimony of the gospel. Work on it, do all you can to continue in the gospel and when you get to the end of the road, and you can't see the path in front of you. Take the next step in faith, look for the fruits of the gospel, and ask God. For anyone who may be struggling at this moment in your life, I challenge you to do the same. Don't take one step away from the gospel. It is the ONLY thing that is going to get you through these times. This world is only going to get more trying, and if we are not firmly rooted in it, we will fall. Continue doing the things that you know are right.
